Annals of the World


Published 1650
SHOW MORE


In the years 1650-1654, James Ussher set out to write a history of the world from creation to A.D. 70. The result was published in 1650 as the literary classic "The Annals of the World." This famous comprehensive history of the world, originally published in Latin, offers a look at history rarely seen. Ussher traveled throughout Europe, gathering much information from the actual historical documents. Many of these documents are no longer available, having been destroyed since the time of his research. In its pages can be found the fascinating history of the ancient world from the Genesis creation through the destruction of the Jerusalem temple.

This massive historical work chronicles world history from creation to A.D. 70. Little-known details (not found in standard texts) of the Egyptian, Greek, and Roman struggles for domination are cleverly woven into the narrative. Learn about war and peace, heroes and villains, and kings and kingdoms of biblical times in vivid detail.
